James was 16 years old and transported for “Stealing a carpet bag”.
James was single, could read and write, ruddy freckled complexion, red hair, grey hazel eyes.
His record also says “Colonial Sentences”.
There were 2 James Fitzsimmons on this ship.
This James Fitzsimmons was a shoemaker, so I am guessing that he was the one that married Elizabeth Smith in Appin in 1840. They had 7 or 8 children.
5/7/1888: James died aged 79 at Wellington. He was a Publican at the time of is death, and is buried at Stuart Town Cemetery NSW.
There was also a COF on 5/11/1840 but nothing to say which James it was for.
